Aku suka mengumpulkan kartu pos, meskipun cuma sesukanya dan sedapatnya. Jadi, pas menemukan buku kartu pos ini di slot bargain books-nya Peri+ online, ya kubeli deh.

Anyway, seperti biasa, Keri Smith menganjurkan pada pembacanya untuk berkreasi dengan memanfaatkan koleksi kartu pos ini. Misalnya... ada yang disarankan untuk dikubur di halaman tetangga. Atau ada juga yang diminta untuk dilipat-lipat dan dijadikan perahu kertas (perahu kartu?) dan dibiarkan mengalir sampai jauh...

Everybody loves receiving letters and postcards; it's a lovely change to all those bills. In this book Keri Smith is encouraging us to remember that joy by exploring postcards in fun and creative ways. Some cards make you explore your environment, others are games, one of my favourites is sending a card to a friend and seeing how many times you can send it back and forth.

For me it's Smith's illustrations that really make the postcards and there are even a few to make you test your own drawing s

The only reason i bought this book in the 1st place because the price was about USD2 dollars at a bookfair. While flipping through the pages at first my thought was "ok so these are postcards i could use to send to my friends".
After i get home, i read postcard by postcard, and now i dont want to give this funny pieces to anyone i just keep this for myself.

So i get myself a journal and fill it with whatever instructions/prompts from Everything Is Connected.

It was fun.

Cute book. Actually, there are some interesting things that I might try with my Teen group...maybe during Poetry month or something. Not really sure this makes a great library book, but I'm still glad we have it. :) Part of me wishes it was mine so I could use the postcards!

So I didn't really buy this book, I read it on a visit to Barnes and Noble, but several of the pages made me smile, and I would totally recommend doing the suggested activities in this book. I'll do it myself someday.

أنا من عشاق كتب كيري سميث، لديها نبع لا ينضب من اﻷفكار حول كل شيء بشكل يدفعك إلى إعادة التفكير حول كل ما تراه لكي تعيد صياغته بما يتلائم مع خيالك، وهى للحق من أكثر الكتاب/ الرسامين ممن يلهمونني.
